right you are! jer could sing pretty well....yes he could.....

and if you are anything like me, you get caught up in all the amazing improv and PLAYIN the dead did....but while that is all endlessly is the personality that really hooks you....jerry wasnt always note perfect but his soul really shined when he had his full powers and could move you with his voice. he was just a MASTER STORYTELLER in every sense. he sings to you...a real communicator, not always PUTTING ON a performance....

the YOUTUBE QUALITY SUCKS, but check it anyway

since discovering the SUNSHINE DAYDREAM movie all the other dead footage pales in is not only amazing footage of a milestone concert -- it is a QUALITY piece of CINEMA -- REALLY! if you havent seen it, it is THAT GOOD....make a point of it!

It occurs to me that at least some of that high energy Jerry was bringing to the microphone could be from his own satisfaction that he was really learning to sound like a lot of that Grand Ole Opry stuff he grew up with, and having a ball with it, at that.

the dead/jerry did more than the average joe will ever know for the sake of live music, performance, is easy to forget that they werent fitting into an established structure like LOLAPALOOSER or any of your run o the ill XGAMES associated BUDWISER sponsored cavalcades -- the well oiled publicity/marketing-tie in shite that drives todays music scene (at least as far as gigs that draw in the 5,000 + range go)

anyway, the dead and their peeops invented this shit, putting on shows, INDEPENDENT STYLE, ANNNNND the SOUND SYSTEMS....all of it...and yet they were ROOT DOWN at the same time....

i get your drift BRYAN E....i know the vibe you are feeling....for sure. another facet to the personality of the band that we all love -- THEY KNOW THEY'RE BADASS -- OK OK so i am a sad little deadhead but in all of their UTTER DORKINESS -- they are far and away the coolest, hipper-than-shit-most rock band EVER -- again...there is no comparrison, just by the shear fact that THEY DID IT BETTER, THEY DID IT FOR LONGER, THEY DID IT MORE OFTEN, THEY TOOK MORE CHANCES, THEY SIGNIFICANTLY RE-INVENTED THEMSELVES NUMEROUS TIMES,....AND REPEATED THEMSELVES LESS.....

sure sure...maybe the stones have played Jumpin Jack Flash fewer times than the dead played dark star -- but what the fuck is that?

HELL YEAH JERRY WAS PLEASED WITH HIMSELF! he was jerry......the coolest motherf&c&er this side of jack kerouac, cassidy, kesey and the whole damn BUS.
